And id like you to take this question ''seriously''

I have a very intense job so the only thing i want to do is to switch on my laptop, relax and play a game!
And, no i am not a ''drivers Specialist'' so please if you dont mind just tell me what tool i should be looking for.


Thanks

this kind of software is the best way to make your notebook not work properly anymore. And this is a very serious reply. If you want to keep ypur G75 running well, avoid install crap free software from C-Net and others.

ok wait i think i described it the wrong way.

What i mean is a tool from nvidia, Asus or from Windows!

I recently had to install the full version of windows office 2010, since then it seems like my system is running very slow.
I know that it is due to Win. Office but i was wondering if there is a tool which would organize my system.


I would never use programs like registry mechanic etc.

not really any program like that, which checks if system is optimal.
easiest thing is hold windowskey and press R. tyoe in msconfig, and disable items from the start tab that you arnt using.

I've been using Advanced System Optimizer from http://www.systweak.com/aso/ Good program to keep your laptop in perfect order. It also includes a driver updater that once saved my laptop from being sent for RMA. The nvidia drivers could not be installed because the program could not detect my GPU. The driver updater in that program managed to find drivers and got things working again. I can really recommend this program to everyone.

Best things to do to keep your system running well.

1. Keep things up to date

2. Defrage your HDD drive once a week, or if you have a SSD run drive optimizer once a week.

3. Keep you drive clean (take out the garbage) use a good system drive cleaner like CCleaner>>>>download/standard here (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard)

Hmm, i would suggest you do a clean install, and then get your main drivers installed, and then see how the office 2010 affects your system..?

If you wanna play something like planetside 2 andili, you need to have a fully cleared up CPU usage, if as you say MS office 2010 has made things slow, you have some rouge processes eating up memory in the background which is reallly not good..

Unfortunately there is no magical tool that does everything for you :p lol

Office 2010 eating up resources? ROFLMAO! That is pure BS!

It is an app that only runs when you launch it! the problem lies somewhere else

Im using System Mechanic to keep my system tidy. And Ive been very happy with it so far.
Will however concider not using it when I get my new system together with the OS on an SSD, it did mess up my games-SSD, when it convinced me to put things in order there as well. But other than that, Ive had only good experience with it.

hope you're enjoying the placebo effect with these tools that are SNAKE OIL

No tool will maintain your computer and magically make it stable and fast! this is just online marketing BS and 99% of the time these tools cause more harm than good. Take for example, these registry cleaners or system optimizers.

Nothing works best than leave Windows the **** alone and just defragment your HDD if you have an HDD, disable Virtual Memory if you have 16 GB of RAM or more, disable unwanted services / programs from automatic startup, and get a good / light weight antivirus

Sounds interesting. Did anyone actually measure and publish the effect of optimizers (or lack of effect)? You mention some statistics, what is your source?

Generally, every application consumes a large memory space and ultimately slows down your system performance. If application is useless, then you better uninstall it, so that you could use valuable RAM memory space. Sometimes, users get frustrated due to slow performance of the system, but now its possible to optimize the system speed by using RecoveryFix Memory Optimizer tool. The tool has been developed to help you free up and tune up the physical memory consumed by useless applications without wasting any time.

Thanks

I would suggest you spend some time getting to know your system 1st, tweaking it manually, & then enjoying the results (while still performing the defrag/update/ etc. suggestions above).

I'd start with drivers. Look in your Device Manager & ensure that everything's functioning properly. if not, try to determine what the faulty device is & update its drivers. & try to become somewhat knowledgeable about what's listed there. (i.e. If you have an active & operational device--such as a WiFi card, that you NEVER plan on EVER using--because you ALWAYS plan on your computer being connected to your router on CAT5/CAT6/etc, consider uninstalling it. Otherwise, research into any driver updates that might be available for your listed devices, & then do some MORE research into whether installing the update would be good for you. (Not all driver updates are "better" than the tried & true old drivers that may have been on your system from the moment you purchased it. Just something to keep in mind...)

Next, to Services. One site I've found immensely helpful is http://www.blackviper.com/service-configurations/ . Select the link that represents your OS/ computer configuration & read through what BV lists for the different services & settings. Understand that what BV might consider needs to be set to "disabled" is actually something you want/ need at a different setting for your intended usage. Research until you feel confident that you know what the results will be before making changes here.

& if you happen to see a service listed on your laptop that BV hasn't listed, look it up on the internet before making a decision & taking any action in regards to changing that service setting.

Using MSConfig at this point "should" only verify that any changes you've made to the services have actually been enacted--but its a good check to do so.

Also, as was suggested prior, look at your installed programs--even the ones listed as being installed with windows (sry--on work computer & am restricted from seeing that portion of "programs and Features" at the moment.) Take some time to determine if 1) they are really necessary for proper OS/ computer operation, 2) desired so that you can use your computer as you want (i.e. "gaming") & 3) you consider them to be "other useful tools--like "Ccleaner." Try to minimize your installed programs to just these 3 categories...but again, when in doubt, look it up & get knowledgeable enough with that specific software app to be able to feel comfortable deciding whether it stays or is uninstalled.

Once you've completed these steps, run a HDD cleaner (such as Ccleaner mentioned above).

Immediately after cleaning the HDD, set a restore point...or perhaps even create a system image. Doing so will give you the ability to "reset" your system in the future should something "bad" happen, without the need to restore to factory setting & then re-install everything else again.

This process will take you some "up-front" time to complete. But once you've completed it, you'll 1) have more confidence in knowing what your system is capable of, 2) know that you've had a hand in making it run as well as YOU can & 3) only have to perform weekly "maintenance" (possible updates/ HDD clean/ HDD defrag-SSD drive optimization) to keep it that way. Doing so will save you time in the long run--trust me on this.

Hope this helps!

Hummm, just take out the trash regularly!
Use a product like ccleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner) should do well in keeping things clean!

I've been using registry cleaners since they frist came out and they are best for people who don't have common sense (computer sense) or just dont seen to care. For the most part, they are not needed. They can also do bad things sometimes. I gave up and will not run one on a machine in my house! But for the uneducated, computer illiterate who installes every beta, demo, trialware and the uninstall or reinstall and still running on the same install for 4 years, maybe they would be helpful to them.

The best this to do is when you install "anything" is NEVER ACCEPT THE DEFAULTS", always read what addition programs, toolbars, software and features it will install with it. Especially "DO YOU WANT THIS PROGRAM TO REGULARLLY CHECK FOR UPDATES?" select NO! Having 5 or 10 programs running update programs in the background wastes resources, toobars, spy on you and lead you to purchases the get commission on.

Many people say now that defraging doesn't affect you system performance like they used to think, but i couldn't hurt! I have Norton 360 which says it has a defragmenter included but it really just hijacks the Windows defrag task and runs it as if it were theirs.

You can type services.msc in the Start search bar to see what is running. Rule of thumb "if the system appears to be running fine, don't mess with it". And seriously, don't use system restore unless as a last resort!!!!

I agree with tolarik, I use CCleaner for some stuff ( be sure to save your registry), but I would say best tool for optimizing your system is your brain...

The good thing about CCleaner, it's really "lite" on the registry clean.
The key is to always use the backup feature, if something goes wrong then you can add back!
(I'v never had a problem the that area)

But for "Disk" clean up it does an excellent job keeping your drives clean!
I use the "secure delete" feature, works really well IMHO.

To sum things up, I think "CCleaner" is a great free tool for garbage removal!
